Information Technology (IT) is considered as a very important part of today’s world of business and researches indicate that it helped and still helps companies to lower their costs and increase the information quality with speed. On the other hand, Senior IT Managers, such as Chief Information Officers (CIO) roles are very important in the IT department more than other department’s relationships with their senior managers. This study investigates the identification of the effects and importance of the activities and skills of senior IT managers and their impact to the organization in the private sector. Previous studies generally studied the IS/IT Managers skills and their effects to the IS/IT department and also listed those skills and tasks. Also literature researchers focused on IS/IT managers skills, IS/IT managers effects to the IT/IS departments and IS/IT departments effects to the organization. This research study helps to highlight the importance and role of IS/IT Managers within not only private but also public sector organizations and other industries.
